The countdown to Christmas has begun in earnest and if you are looking to soak in the year-end festivities with the family, Suntec City will be the perfect choice… because not only have they got you covered with great shopping and food, Suntec City is also celebrating Christmas in a HUGE way! Yes, think amusement rides, carnival games, an NFT digital art exhibition, and even live music, all happening from now to 25 December 2022.
And did I mention a massive 15m-tall Christmas tree that comes with snowfall too??? Sounds like a great photo (and play) opportunity with the kids!
Christmas in the City @ Suntec City comprises of a series of unique and exciting activities designed to appeal to everyone, from the young to the young-at-heart.
From enjoying festive-themed carnival rides and games and jamming to the acoustic live music to admiring neon light installations and even learning more about the digital arts scene at an NFT exhibition, here are the FUN things to expect:
Make no mistake, this is the area where kids will cheerfully flock to.
An outdoor carnival by Uncle Ringo, this fun wonderland brings back nostalgic rides like Meteorite, Dog Ship and the Grand Carousel.
Located at the Suntec Plaza, the outdoor area between Tower 1 & 5 on Level 1 of Suntec City, younger kids can go on the Grand Carousel which is fashioned after a retro merry-go-round or hop onto a mini train which plies the carnival area.
Or they can go all bouncy crazy at Santa’s Race Track, which is a giant inflatable!
Located on Level 3 at the Sky Garden, kids will have a field day navigating through the bouncy inflatable course. I had a go at it together with Ale and let’s just say kids have this natural ability to out-navigate their parents at obstacle courses like this. In fact, she was already out AND raring to go for a second round while I was still trying my darndest to complete it! 😅
Want an even MORE thrilling experience? Take on the Meteorite challenge and go spinning fast while being elevated upwards!
And what’s a carnival without game booths?
In addition to the familiar carnival games, Uncle Ringo has introduced new Christmas-themed games including Presents Smash, Santa’s Milk Churn and Snowball Toss where you can demonstrate your perfect aim as you lob off different targets.
TIP #1: If you are looking for a SURE-WIN prize, head to the Hook-A-Gift game. All you have to do is to ‘fish’ a present with a hook attached to a stick and there will be a prize waiting for you inside the bag!
TIP #2: Enjoy 15% off carnival game credits if you are a Suntec+ member! Simply show your loyalty card via the Suntec+ App at the ticketing booth to enjoy the discount. Non-members will also receive a 5% discount when they purchase the carnival credits both on-site, and online.
And while you are there, be sure to have your photos taken at the various light installations too!
There are the obvious ones like the 15m-tall Christmas Tree and light installations at the carnival area but did you know that the Sky Garden at Level 3 also has a number of neon light installations too?
Simply take the outdoor escalator from the Suntec Plaza and you will come face to face with the first light installation.
There’s always something about neon lights – it never fails to delight the young and the old. 😊
As you emerge from the neon light tunnel, turn left and turn left again when you reach the end. You will see another three neon light installations.
And the icing on the cake has got to be the SNOWFALLS happening on Fridays to Sundays (7.30pm & 8.30pm), right beside the massive Christmas Tree.
Don’t miss it!
